"It gives me immense pleasure to learn that Graduates Welfare Association, Fazilka has initiated a dedicated web portal for the "Ecocabs". Traditional rickshaw has been an affordable means of transportation in India since over a century. Department of Tourism, Punjab has pioneered to introduce "Fazilka Ecocabs- a modified traditional rickshaw operations concept" in the holy city of Amritsar and also in the other parts of Punjab. In the era of technology, making "Ecocabs" information accessible and available through website is a welcoming step. This will benefit the concerned authorities, NGO's and public at large to learn more about the technical and implementation aspects of "Ecocabs".
I on behalf of Department of Tourism, Govt. of Punjab wish them all success."
